Expert Answer:

  • The hybridisation of carbon atom in diamond is sp3.
  • A three-dimensional network of sigma bonds connects the carbon atoms in diamond to give the typical structure of diamond.
  • Each carbon atom is attached with another four carbon atoms through sp3 hybridised four covalent bonds.
